I just finished designing Katy & John’s engagement guestbook for their upcoming wedding and had to share one of my favorites from their engagement session in Gruene, Texas. If you haven’t been, this is a great time of year to visit while it’s nice and cool out and make sure to grab a bite at the Gristmill and then get some ice cream across the street at the general store. Perfect place for a family outing or a date – you’ll thank me later.
As we were chatting and planning for their engagement session, it became clear to us that Vilma + Clint needed two main things out of their engagement session:
1) Their cute little doggies, Madeleine + Baxter.
2) Wow factor / fashion / sexy.
After a bit of discussion, we ended up going with an extended engagement session, shooting for about 5 hours, stopping to grab a light breakfast and a light lunch along the way.
In the morning we went to the University of the Incarnate Word campus, Vilma & Clint’s alma mater, where we got to hang out with a couple of adorable Bijou Francais’ (while cracking up with Anchorman references… because they literally named Baxter after the poor little dog whom the bad man punted – HA!)
We were in the middle of our grande tour of their old stomping grounds when we spotted a perfectly nice log for sitting and cuddling. And it was even super-comfortable. No pokey bits or anything… yeah… Madeline + Baxter gave it their seal of approval!
One of Vilma’s good friends was nice enough to swing by to pick up Madeleine + Baxter, and we headed to the Pearl Brewery to continue. But first, breakfast! We stopped in at the CIA Bakery Café, and considering that the ‘CIA’ stands for Culinary Institute of America… yeah, it was delicious. Vilma + Clint had the chocolate croissants, and they looked pretty content with their decision. 😀
Gotta love the Big Ass Fans.
Who doesn’t like a little R&R in a parking garage?
^^ If that isn’t a Coca Cola ad, I don’t know what is. 😀
